New Corvette offers power and fuel efficiency

General Motors has announced that the EPA has granted the new 2014 Corvette Stingray its EPA estimated fuel efficiency ratings. The EPA has given the car efficiency estimate of 17 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on highway. GM says that drivers who use the Eco-mode will be able to achieve 30 mpg on highway.

Eco-mode is a user selectable mode for 7-speed manual versions of the Stingray that deactivates four the eight cylinders of the engine when power is not needed. Eco-mode is constantly active on automatic equipped Stingrays unless the driver is using the sport shift paddles on the transmission.

GM says that the MPG estimates make the Stingray the most fuel-efficient Corvette ever produced while it offers more power than previous versions. The Corvette will be available this fall in coupe form with the convertible coming by the end of the year.

1963 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Appreciation

Jun 18 2014 8:55pm CDT | Source: autoMedia.com

When one hears the name Corvette, the first assumption would be to think of the 1963 Corvette Stingray, which embodies the decades long history of the American sports car. The 1963 Corvette was the only year for the famous split-window design, a feature upon which the car would build a legacy. With a front engine, rear-wheel drive layout and fiberglass body, the Corvette had all of the basic components to make it a sports car. The only thing left would be an engine, which would of course ha ...

It’s no mystery that the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor is the most powerful and skillful factory-built pickup truck you can buy nowadays. Its 6.2-liter, V-8 mill churns 411 horsepower and 434 pound-feet, while its hardcore underpinnings enable it to take on just about any terrain. It’s the perfect machine, right?Well, not quite. Not as long as tuning shops like Hennessey Performance and Roush are turning them into more powerful and more capable vehicles. We ca ...
